22″ x 28″ Mixed Media Created as the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department arrested us during the eviction of Occupy Charlotte and the destruction of the Art Studio. The writing on the left is a list of my maternal ancestors, who arrived in 1698 and then moved to the Charlotte area. They were Quakers and camped here as a nonviolent protest. The words on the right side ask “Will I be arrested for crayons? How can this be?”
